“We’re thrilled that the NuGuard KX has been recognized by Beatweek with a Best
of Show award,” said Larry O’Connor, President, Newer Technology, Inc. “With
the NuGuard KX’s certified protective qualities and slim, easy-to-install one-piece
design, this award truly reflects its innovative features.”
Extreme Protection Without Bulk
Unlike common military-impact test grade iPhone case materials that can add bulk,
the NuGuard KX uses state-of-the-art X-Orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly
distribute kinetic energy to protect an iPhone from accidental drops or scratching.
This hyper-advanced gel is then engineered into a stylish and effective one-piece
The NuGuard KX is Quanta Laboratories certified to withstand the Shock
Test Method of the MIL-STD-810G U.S. Military Standard for elite protection.
Yet, the KX is barely half an inch thick so it can easily fit and slide into
a pocket. And its Edge Guard over-molding provides enhanced iPhone screen edge
protection without interfering edge-to-edge touch finger accessibility to ensure
hassle-free touch keyboarding and ability to drag and organize app icons from
screen to screen.
Protection That Doesn’t Compromise Convenience
With its precision molded buttons and accessibility cutouts, the NuGuard KX allows
for full operability of all function buttons and access to all of the iPhone’s
ports. The backside of the KX features a crosshatch texture design for added
grip that doesn’t make it hard to remove from pockets like other texturized cases.
With its one-piece design, installing an iPhone into the KX is an easy, several
X-treme Drop Test Videos Prove Effectiveness
To prove its effectiveness, Newer Technology created several videos to demonstrate
the protective qualities and durability of NuGuard KX in extreme use scenarios.
To document Quanta Laboratories’ Mil-Spec certification, the recognized and required
Method 516.6 Procedure IV (Transit Drop) test from 48 inches was recorded. Next,
a NuGuard KX protected iPhone 5 was dropped from 20 feet – five times higher
than the Mil Spec test height – from warehouse racking onto a concrete floor.
Finally, the ultimate X-treme test… an iPhone 5 safely ensconced in a NuGuard
KX was dropped from Other World Computing’s towering on-site wind turbine. To
